so long to traditional letter grades elementary teachers here can choose new system by Ne i l Cor be tt staff reporter
Mike Saul, a teacher at Highland Park elementary, would like student grading to move away from the traditional letter system.
Colleen Flanagan/the news
Elementary school teachers in the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows will no longer be required to grade students with an A, C+ or D. Wednesday, the local school board approved a new elementary reporting alternate option, termed a student-inclusive conferencing model. It will see teachers meet with students and parents to discuss progress, and an increased emphasis on student self-assessment. Trustees were unanimous in their support of the new option, which was developed over two years by a local committee, headed by the district’s director of instruction, David Vandergugten. see Grades, p12
Tears shed over school budget cuts Class sizes will also increase to help offset shortfall by Ne i l Corbet t staff reporter

Valerie Rankin in her Grade 2/3 class at Eric Langton elementary Thursday. As part of the cuts, 35 teaching positions will be eliminated.
Tears were literally shed as school trustees passed a preliminary budget Wednesday that included $5.6 million in cuts. Trustee Sarah Nelson’s personal grief and frustration with the budget came out during the discussion, and she struggled to compose herself as she talked about how the local school board lacked autonomy in setting the $130 million budget for 2013/2014.

Still, she said, members will face public criticism. “It’s difficult to own this.” Other trustees were also emotional, and at one point the meeting’s stenographer got up left the board room, returning with a box of tissue she handed to misty-eyed board chairman Mike Murray. Murray explained that there will be 35 positions lost across the district next year, and lamented that it is the new staff coming into the system that will be lost. “This impacts the young teachers coming into the system who have just spent three, four or five years TOC-ing [teacher on call], and now they’re not going to have jobs.” After the meeting, Murray said he was

taken aback by colleagues crying at the board table, and of his own tears. “That shocked me.” But he was not surprised by a strong emotional reaction from board members. “We really do care a lot about our students, and we see how passionate our staff are,” he said. “We’re just really afraid that what we stand for might be lost. “You’re affecting people’s lives.” The board faced a budget shortfall of $5.66 million. This was brought about by several factors, including a projected decline in student enrollment of 197.5 fulltime equivalents. That will cause a drop of $1.17 million in government per-pupil funding.

Ridge Meadows Hospital one of only eight in Canada to be given the lowest mark possible, although it had the third best rate in the country (for medium communities) for 30-day hospital mortality following serious heart attacks. THE NEWS/files
Ridge hospital receives ‘D’ grade But patients, Fraser Health suggest rankings inaccurate by M o ni s ha M a r tin s staff reporter
Canada-wide study done by CBC that rated Ridge Meadows Hospital among the lowest in the country is being panned by patients and the Fraser Health Authority. Ridge Meadows Hospital was among five Metro Vancouver hospital to receive a ‘D’ rating in the study, which based its assessment on data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information. The study used five of 21 clinical performance indicators, such as re-admission rates, rates of patients who died after major surgery, and unexpected complications tied to low nursing levels, such as bed sores or urinary tract infections. Mike Boileau participated in an online survey on CBC’s website, but disagrees with its final results – meant to provide a snapshot of 240 acute-care hospitals across the country. “From my experience, Ridge Meadows Hospital was just great,” says Boileau, who spent 10 days in hospital last year due to complications from pneumonia. “I was treated with respect, the people cared for me profes-
The nurses’ union claims that beds in hallways is part of the problem. sionally and with kindness. They wouldn’t let me leave until they were sure I could take care of myself at home.” The Fraser Health Authority believes it’s misleading to judge the overall performance of a hospital based on the CBC report alone. “We appreciate the work that CBC has put into their hospital report card project, but believe that the CBC results show that it is difficult to compare results between jurisdictions when the methods hospitals use to keep track of data about quality of care
vary widely,” said spokesperson Roy Thorpe-Dorward. In fact, if you look beyond the five indictors used in the CBC report, the Canadian Institute for Health Information data shows that Fraser Health hospitals have some of the best indicators in the province and nationally. Ridge Meadows Hospital had the third best rate in the Canada (for medium communities) for 30-day hospital mortality following serious heart attacks. The CBC notes the report cards are designed to bring more trans-
parency and accountability to Canada’s health care system. Unlike the U.K., U.S. and Australia, where information is easily available online, Canadians don’t have access to an independent assessment of how patients at a particular hospital fare. Fraser Health though is already working towards making information on infection control, hand hygiene rates and wait times available. But Thorpe-Dorward said Fraser Health is still several months away from being able to provide specific information about making that data public. The B.C. Nurses’ Union was not surprised by the low ratings. “Right across the area we cover, hospital and community nurses have seen their work intensity increase,” said Liz Ilczaszy, co-chair for the BCNU’s Simon Fraser region, which spans Burnaby to Maple Ridge. “It’s because people are in hospitals for shorter stays, but have more complex health problems. When you have beds in hallways, it’s an indicator that there are not adequate measures for safe patient care.” Nurses who work at Ridge Meadows Hospital tell Ilczaszy they often work entire shifts without being able to take breaks. “It just reinforces what the BCNU has been saying: unless you have safe staffing levels, you
are not going to have safe patient care,” she adds. The union continues to push the province to keep its promise to hire more than 2,000 nurses by 2016 and listen to the concerns voiced by nurses. Marc Dalton, B.C. Liberal MLA for Maple Ridge-Mission, hopes the ‘D’ grade doesn’t scare patients away from Ridge Meadows Hospital. “I would hope that residents wouldn’t feel in anyway hesitant to go to that hospital because it’s an excellent hospital and it’s got excellent staff.” He acknowledged there is always room for improvement, but was quick to point out that B.C. has the best health outcomes of any province in Canada, after Quebec. “I think there are a lot of things to celebrate with our health care system,” said Dalton, adding that British Columbians have the longest life spans in Canada and the best outcomes for serious illnesses, such as cancer. “We are always ready to examine ways to improve.” The Metro Vancouver hospitals to get a ‘D’ rating include: Burnaby Hospital, Surrey Memorial Hospital, UBC Hospital and Vancouver General Hospital. • For links to the CBC Report Card, visit mapleridgenews.com.

Car Care with Cyril Barry
I DON’T SEE YOU The title to this week’s article represents a few words that I hear time and again albeit a tad out of context to shorten the title. The actual phrase was ‘I hope I don’t see you for a long, long time.” These parting words were spoken by yet another new customer, after we’d spent a great deal of her money fixing a multitude of problems she’d been experiencing for a very long time. Like far too many others, this new customer had ignored her vehicle and it’s basic, scheduled or any type of maintenance until it was too late and the car failed to start in her driveway. This of course beats the alternative, that being breaking down on the side of the road in the dark, in the rain! Many people think that after spending a ton of money on their vehicle to fix it, they want to avoid the repair shop as they don’t want to get saddled with another big bill. The conventional thinking is to stay away from the shop so one doesn’t have to spend so much money to keep the car up to snuff. This is the absolute worst thing someone could do at this point in the cars’ life cycle, now that it’s up to speed and running well. The reason my new customer had to spend so much money on her last visit was due to the car being way behind on maintenance. So far so, it required a tow just to get it into the shop. The issue is simple, maintain your vehicle on a regular basis and you won’t have to spend so much when you visit the shop. Of course it’s one thing to say it, but it’s hard to accept that you need to do it. This first step in the journey of avoiding expensive shop repair visits is to accept that your vehicle is a machine, albeit a very complicated one, and like all machines it can and will have parts that will wear out before its lifespan is complete. If and when you can accept this tiny bit of information you’ll be on the way to owning a safe, reliable, fuel efficient vehicle. This in the long run will save you thousands upon thousands of after taxed dollars.
Coun. Hogarth wants Brown Ave. improved He manages three properties along same road by P hil Mel nyc hu k staff reporter
It’s been in the works for a couple decades. Now it’s time to get it done and complete the plan and rebuild Brown Avenue, says Maple Ridge Coun. Al Hogarth. The road, a block north of Dewdney Trunk Road, runs from 222nd to 227th streets. At one point there were plans to make it a one-way street, to ease the load on Dewdney Trunk. “Why can’t we finish that off, because it’s been 20 to 25 years. Enough is enough,” he said at council Monday. Turning the street into a one-way is no longer in the plans, but the district still owns the right of way to allow road widening. There are only one or two lots blocking the extension of Brown Avenue east to hook up to 228th Street. Meanwhile, at least one major condo development has been completed on the north side of the road. “We’ve been languishing with this promise of Brown Avenue for how many years? Now that you’re seeing things happen-
Phil Melnychuk/tHe news
Two of the three lots Hogarth manages still have houses on them, and they are part of an application to build a three-tower condo project . ing, maybe it’s time it should be re-evaluated and tell people once and for all if it’s going to go or not,” Hogarth said later. Maybe new condo projects can pay for the final pieces to complete the road rebuilding, he suggested. Hogarth said the road allowance should be wide enough to allow two full traffic lanes, as well as bicycle lanes, while the south side of Brown could have commercial development. Hogarth, also a realtor, is currently managing three lots on the southeast corner of Edge Street and Brown Ave., two of which still have houses remaining.
The lots are part of the property on which a three-tower condo project is proposed. That application, by Ascent One Properties, came to council in February. The application seeks to rezone the corner of Dewdney Trunk Road and Edge Street, currently the location of Paliotti’s restaurant, and three other lots on Brown for the condo project, which would include some commercial space. One of the developers of the Brown Ave. application also developed the 223 North project on Lougheed Highway and 223rd Street, which Hogarth marketed as a realtor. Hogarth excused
himself from council’s February discussion of the Brown Avnue application. He sees no conflict of interest in calling for the upgrade of Brown Avenue and his managing the properties on that road. “No, I don’t feel it’s a conflict whatsoever. If anything, it’s a benefit to the district to have this stuff going ahead. It just adds strength to the stuff on either side of it.” When the development proceeds, he’ll no longer be managing the houses, because they’ll be torn down as part of the development. And he has no connection to Ascent One and its Brown Ave. project. “I have no guaran-
tees. I have nothing in writing. I have no contractual obligation other than I’m managing the property.” Besides, the developer has to do road work and dedication. “It’s a given that they’ll have to do it anyways.” He added that the road improvements have been considered for a long time and that the road stretches several blocks and just wanted to know if it will be part of the transportation plan. The road needs improvement regardless, he added. Mayor Ernie Daykin said he didn’t even consider if Hogarth had a conflict of interest in calling for a road improvement along properties he manages. “I hadn’t even thought of that.” He said each councillor has to determine if he or she is in a conflict of interest when considering an agenda item. “He’s got to ask himself that. I can’t tell Al that he’s in a conflict of interest. They [councillors] need to evaluate that on their own merits.” According to Section 101 of the Community Charter, a councillor can’t participate in a discussion or vote on any topic on which he or she has a direct or indirect financial interest. Section 100 also requires a councillor to declare that interest.

Premier Christy Clark’s statement last month opposing universal road pricing or tolling. “The premier was asked about the kind of comprehensive road pricing that has been described by folks around individual tolls on various bridges around the region,” Polak said, calling it a response to a “fairly specific” question.
Transportation Minister Mary Polak has set an end-of-September deadline to draw up recommendations for a reform of TransLink’s governance and to map out a strategy to publicly examine contentious new funding sources. The announcement came just a wee before the provincial election campaign starts. The working group agreed to includes mayors’ council chair Richard Walton and vicechair Wayne Wright, Polak, her deputy minister and assistant deputy minister, and North Vancouver District’s chief administrative officer. Walton called it a “very
Mayors want to regain power over TransLink’s plans and priorities. Since a 2008 reform that purged TransLink’s board of elected reps, the mayors have only had the power to approve or reject new tax hikes, resulting in a political stalemate and no solution on how to fund transit expansion for the long term.

positive first step” and said it will be productive no matter which provincial party governs after May 15. Walton rejected suggestions nothing will be done once the election writ drops, noting that while Polak must be hands off during the campaign, her senior staff can continue to meet with mayors’ council reps. Mayors had hoped the province would take earlier action to reform TransLink ahead of the election and commit to new sustainable funding tools. “It’s less than ideal, but it doesn’t mean we have to stop,” Walton said. “We can make quite an amount of mileage until we have a minister reconfirmed or a new one in place.” The September deadline gives enough time for legislation to alter TransLink’s structure to be crafted ahead of a spring 2014 legislative session.

THE NEWS/opinion News Views
Just a snapshot Three of the four lowest rated hospitals in Canada are in the Fraser Health region, including the one in Maple Ridge. Vancouver General Hospital – including UBC – Burnaby Hospital, Surrey Memorial Hospital and Ridge Meadows Hospital all received a ‘D’ grade. The rankings were done by CBC, based on data collected from hospitals by the Canadian Institute for Health Information, a publicly funded, non-profit organization. A range of facilities in small towns and urban centres from across the country achieved an overall Aplus grade, and hospitals in Alberta, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan are represented in the Top 10. The study used five of 21 clinical performance indicators, such as re-admission rates, rates of patients who died after major surgery, and unexpected complications tied to low nursing levels, such as bed sores or urinary tract infections. The majority of hospitals – 240 in total – received B grades. Twenty hospitals received an A rating, while 34 received a C. Only eight facilities had the lowest grade of D. That doesn’t mean residents shouldn’t go to Ridge Meadows Hospital, though. As pointed out by Fraser Health, if you look beyond the five indictors used in the report, the data shows the region’s hospitals are some of the best in the province and nationally in other areas. Ridge Meadows Hospital, for example, had the third best rate in the Canada, for medium-sized communities, for 30-day hospital mortality following serious heart attacks. It doesn’t help that the hospital declined to complete a survey asking questions about initiatives to improve care and safety. Hundreds of hospitals couldn’t even be rated because the necessary data wasn’t publicly available. The report cards are only meant to bring more transparency and accountability to Canada’s health care system. No doubt there is room for improvement, and Fraser Health is already working towards making more information on infection control, hand hygiene rates and wait times available online. The rankings are not an accurate reflection of the work done at our hospitals, although the B.C. Nurses’ Union was not surprised by the low ratings. The reasons, just like health care today, are complex – too much so for a snapshot to capture. – The News

I read it in the Fish and Flies news “All across the country, evidence of environmental degradation was appearing. Everyone noticed except the political establishment.” – U.S. Senator, Gaylord Nelson, founder of Earth Day.
n 1962, Gaylord Nelson convinced Along the Fraser President John F. Jack Emberly Kennedy that environmental threats had to be addressed. Only Kennedy’s assassination delayed remedial action. Then, ironically, in 1969, Union Oil moved the cause forward. It spilled 100,000 barrels of crude oil from an off-shore well, blackening the beaches of a popular vacation land – Santa Barbara, Cal. The result was nationwide outrage. On April 22, 1970, the Earth Day Festival – the first protest to demand a healthy sustainable environment – drew 20 million in cities coast to coast. Politicians suddenly took note. Earth Day 1970 inspired the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the passage of the country’s Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and the Species at Risk Act. Since, lobbying by developers and misguided politicians have undermined the intent of laws in both Canada and the U.S. But, the popularity of Earth Day world-

A poster reads, “The Earth without ART is just, ‘EH’.” Look for a lot of talented musicians, poets, and artists to remind us that all life from microbes to humans is interdependent, and essential for a sustainable environment. That’s a theme of I Read it in the Fish and Flies, a puppet play I’ve written for Earth Day. The lead characters are little- known, and rarely-seen minnows called sticklebacks, a name they get from the three little spines on their dorsal surface. Sticklebacks inhabit most rivers in B.C., including the North Alouette. In 2009, I discovered thousands of them floating belly up in our river. The politicians and the DFO didn’t think that was a problem, but you can decide. Sticky is depressed. He has just read another letter in the Fish and Flies Newspaper that claims some fish and their habitat are more important than others. The author, Randy Karp, a big farm fish, claims that the only important fish are those of “economic value.” Similar letters – written by Steven Karper, an invasive eastern species – have appeared in the Flies in recent weeks. Their attack is incomprehensible to stick-

lebacks, and it has left Sticky very sad. You need a good friend at times like that, and Sticky has one in Pointy, who listens apprehensively as Sticky announces he will join the chum fry swimming down river to the ocean. Pointy warns Sticky of the dangers. Arnold Sturgeon-ator, a huge, voracious bottom feeder, waits at the mouth of the Pitt River, the first leg of that perilous journey. The Fraser, the next leg, is badly polluted, and in the ocean itself there are horrible things to contend with, including oil slicks. Recently, some returning chum died before spawning; weakened by sea lice picked up from fish farms. Sticky appreciates the risks, but he can’t stay in a place where he isn’t appreciated. Fortunately, Sticky’s lament is overheard by a marine biologist, Dr. Bluefish. He’s been visiting the stream to conduct research on the role of small predator fish like sticklebacks to the ecology of all rivers and streams. Dr. Bluefish tells Sticky that the Alouette, his home, can’t remain healthy without him. “You eat stoneflies, caddis, and mayflies,” says the scientist. “Does that matter?” asks Sticky. “If you didn’t, there would be too many of them,” explains Dr. Bluefish. They’d eat all the algae and plants, and in the process add three times the carbon dioxide to the water. That’s more climate change gas heating up the world, Sticky,” he says. “Please don’t go.”

Are there other green spaces provided by the municipality that promote shared fraternity and activity, regardless of age, disability, race, and gender? More houses and businesses may generate more tax revenue, but they certainly don’t necessarily equate to a healthier society. Golf courses like this one need to be recognized for what they really are and that is a social hub of the community that promotes something our society appears to be losing, which, in my opinion, is a sense of contribution and belonging through participation and involvement.
Light rail would make sense Editor, The News: Re: Light rail not in new transport plan (The News, April 10). Once again Maple Ridge disappoints. This is definitely, a municipality run by people who have no clue about growth. How can they not have light rail in the transport plan? Or is it that these people think it just makes more sense to keep building houses and over pack our schools and roads?

I have been here five years, pay high property tax for an area that relies on driving everywhere. We still have no bus up in Silver Ridge or sidewalks going down 232 Street. The district wants to build houses instead of an elementary school, even though the school in the catchment is at full capacity with a waiting list, and our shopping sucks, so we all have to spend our money in Langley and Coquitlam, especially if you have kids.
The West Coast Express is also over packed, and costly, and the times that it does run make no sense to working parents who have to have take their kids to school. Light rail would make so much more sense. But I guess that is something council lacks out this way. But, hey, a casino makes much more sense. Donna Werbes Maple Ridge
bad to say about it. I was treated with respect and kindness. If Fraser Health was not obligated to spend over $1.5 million on phony, non-existent carbon credits, then maybe

132nd Avenue after he was the subject of a public warning by the RCMP following two previous shootings in Burnaby. Police tried to talk Mitchell out of his car, but he would not cooperate. Mitchell then shot at police, who returned fire and fatally wounded him. He died after being rushed to hospital. Mitchell was wanted by police for shooting his former landlord in Burnaby and was also a person of interest in the fatal shooting of two people in a Burnaby sushi restaurant. Montague could not provide details about the type of weapon used by Mitchell or how many shots were fired, because of an upcoming coroner’s inquest. The review of the shooting has been provided to the coroner’s office for an inquest that will examine the circumstances surrounding Mitchell’s death.

New Democrats rolled out their financial plan Friday, proposing tax hikes to 19 per cent for people earning more than $150,000, bumping up the corporate tax rate from 11 to 12 per cent, and reinstating the threeper-cent tax on banks. Voters won’t like that, says Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Liberal candidate Doug Bing. “I don’t think the public really has an appetite for more taxes. Nobody, no matter what their social situation, wants to see taxes go up.” Hiking business taxes will only mean those companies, 90 per cent of which are small businesses, will pass their costs on to the consumer, added Bing, who’s retiring after 36 years as a dentist. He also questions the NDP plan, if it’s elected, to run deficit budgets in the first three years of government, then bal-

The NDP has also promised to increase tax credits for the movie industry in B.C. ance the budget by the end of 2017. “They’re not going to get there if they’re going to have four deficit budgets in a row.” Maple Ridge-Mission Liberal candidate Marc Dalton called the NDP’s plan, “absolutely distressing,” and one that would lead B.C’s economy to spinning out of control. He said the NDP’s plan to cancel the $1,200 RESP contribution by government to start parents saving for their kids education would be a “big loss. “That’s very popular on the door steps.” NDP candidate Elizabeth Rosenau, though, says her party is just
spelling out from where the money will come. “We’re trying to be prudent and practical. There’s a lot of fear-mongering, where people say we’re going to raise taxes. “We’re holding the line in taxes for 98 per cent of the population. We’re holding the line for small business taxes.” The income tax increase on those making more than $150,000 is only a small step up from the current rate and only affects 69,000 people, leaving 3.7 million unaffected, Rosenau added. She also challenged the Liberals’ claim that the 2013 budget is balanced. “We call it bogus. We
don’t think their numbers add up at all.” That budget’s revenue stream relies on sell-offs of Crown assets, she added, and was criticized by the auditor general because it assumes money coming in from those sales. The government is also underestimating what it will need for healthcare, while school boards not even getting enough money to cover their rising labour costs, she said. Rosenau pointed out B.C.’s corporate tax is still below Ontario and Quebec, and the resumption of the bank tax will pay for post-secondary and skills training. See Budget, p10

‘Banks have ability to pay’ Budget from p9
The bank tax is supposed to raise $75 million this year, and $150 million in the years after. “We believe the banks have the ability to pay.” In making the announcement, NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston said the new measures will raise $988 million by 2015. The NDP also wants to expand the carbon tax to include vented emissions from oil and gas operations, capturing an additional five per cent of carbon emissions, which it says will raise $70 million in 2015-16. There are also plans to roll in the B.C. Training and Education Savings Grant and Early Years Strategy into a new childcare and early education plan, although details remain scant. Earlier this week, the NDP promised to increase tax credits for the movie industry in B.C., to compete with new incentives in Ontario. NDP leader Adrian Dix said he’d increase tax credits to 40 per cent of labour costs for both foreign and domestic films shot in B.C. The current credits are 33 per cent for foreign productions and 35 per cent for domestic productions. The digital animation or visual effects tax credit will stay at 17.5 per cent of labour expenditures, said an NDP release. “It’s definitely a huge step in the right direction,” said Wayne Bennett, organizer with SaveBCFilm. “With this increased amount, it gives us a fighting chance.” Maple Ridge was one of the locations for town hall meetings earlier this year as producers, directors and equipment operators feared jobs would move east and south as other governments ramp up their tax credits. While the return of the provincial sales tax means no more HST credits for film companies, increasing the labour tax
credit does help. The governing Liberals have so far refused to consider any changes in film tax credits, but that may change this weekend, when they release their platform. Bennett said that total payroll for B.C. film payroll companies has dropped by 36 per cent in the first quarter of this year compared with the same period last year. And for all of 2012, film industry payroll dropped 32 per cent from the year previous. Still, Bennett doesn’t want to support one party over another as the May 14 election looms, saying that SaveBCFilm is a grass roots organization with a variety of viewpoints. “It wouldn’t be possible to endorse one party over another.” He added that money used to produce films is “totally portable” and will go anywhere the balance sheet looks the best.
“It’s called show business for a reason. It’s a business.” Wayne Bennett, SaveFilmBC “It’s called show business for a reason. It’s a business.” Bing said the provincial government can’t afford to increase tax breaks for the movie industry, and that Dix wants to get back into the subsidy game. The government already offers tax breaks worth $330 million a year, Bing added. “We’re trying to show restraint. Where’s this money going to come from?” The government wants to support the industry, he said, but everybody wants more and restraint has to be shown.

‘E’ will be for ‘emerging’ Grades from front
Committee members noted the feedback from parents who have been involved so far is “throughthe-roof positive.” Two trustees have been through the new assessment process with their children. “It was a phenomenal experience for me, as a parent and as a trustee,” she said. “I know you’re on the right track.” “Conferences are way more valuable than the paper I got at home with the As and Bs on it,” added Susan Carr. Committee members developed a process intended to open dialogue between parent, child and teacher. The conferences celebrate strengths, talk about learning needs, and set future goals. The report is filled out in a more consultative process. The committee members say it has an obvious effect on young learners. “Even our kindergarten students are setting goals for themselves,” said Vandergugten. “And not a single parent asked for a letter grade. No longer are they an A, B or C student.” Vandergugten noted parents won’t see English

5-year mortgages as low as
March 19, 2013 7:44 AM
Budget from front
Salary and benefit increases will rise $1.89 million. Increased costs in services and supplies, including inflation and the switch from the HST to the GST/PST tax system, will cost $610,000. Other factors, including the fact that last year’s budget was only balanced by using $1.5 million from reserves, caused a $2 million shortfall. About 94 per cent of the budget comes from the provincial government, while another five per cent comes from tuition paid by international students. The board has written the province to oppose the present funding levels. Meanwhile, the board decided to: • Raise class sizes averages. But they are still below the legislative limits at every grade level. At the elementary level, this results in a reduction of 11 FTE teachers, and at the secondary level 8.4 FTE teachers, for a complete saving of $1.49 million. • Use $1.51 million from reserves. • Reduce custodial and grounds staffing by five positions, and maintenance staff by one. • Cut clerical staff will by 0.86 FTE. • Reduce student support services by two FTE, and helping teachers by 2.25 FTE.

A great low rate.
• Look at energy conservation, reduced printing and photocopying, centralized purchasing and “rationalizing bus routes,” as measures identified for potential savings. • The board is also looking to increase opportunities to rent its buildings to community groups, and noted the rental rates will be increasing. The document also Clarkson notes that the board has to start planning for anticipated budget shortfalls in future years: $1.93 million in 2014/2015 and $2.16 million in 2015/2016. The trustees would like to see this made an election issue. “What happens next year?” asked Trustee Susan Carr. “We cannot keep doing this. Rempel I haven’t heard a word about education in any election talk from anyone.” Murray noted that the board’s contingency fund was close to $6 million only five years ago, and will be diminished to under $2 million after the new budget. That leaves no room for error in the $130 million operating budget. “That’s of concern in the long run.” And there was talk of the
quality of education being diminished. “There is a point beyond which the level of excellence we have achieved to date will not be able to be maintained,” said trustee Ken Clarkson. “There was a real good effort made to distribute the pain as equitably as possible,” added trustee Dave Rempel, and he gave kudos to secretary treasurer Flavia Coughlan, calling it the clearest school board budget of the 16 he has been involved with. There will be a budget committee-ofthe-whole meeting on April 17, and registration is required. The final budget is scheduled to be adopted at the May 8 meeting. The board conducted an online survey, to get feedback from education stakeholders and the general public about where to cut. There were 1,084 respondents. Half were elementary school parents, 22 per cent were employees, 21 per cent were secondary school parents, four per cent were community members and one per cent were students.

Grant De Patie’s parents Corinne and Doug speak to media outside the gas station where he worked. The family wants Grant’s Law to be restored to its original form. has not plans to restore the regulations. In fact, spokesperson Donna Freeman stresses that Grant’s Law remains intact. Grant’s Law, that brought in 24-hour pay before you pump regula-
tions, has not changed, she said. Freeman added there was extensive public consultation done before and after Grant’s Law came into effect, with both employers and employees.
b r i t i s h
“So we have listened,” she said, adding the third option offered to employers still protects late-night workers. “We feel it is as safe and option for an employer to choose, if they can’t do the other two.”

Overnight protests will take place at three convenience stores in B.C. on Friday to demand the province restore Grant’s Law to its original form. The Employee Action and Rights Network and B.C. Federation of Labour have organized sit-ins targeting Mac’s Convenience Stores in Vancouver, Nanaimo and Victoria. They will begin Friday night and continue until 6 a.m. Saturday morning. “The protests are to mark the one-year anniversary of the watering down of Grant’s Law,” said Stephen Von Sychowski with EARN. Implemented in 2008, Grant’s Law made British Columbia the first province in Canada to make drivers pay before they pump gas. The law initially included provisions to add two workers or barriers for those who work retail graveyard shifts – an integral part of the legislation for Grant De Patie’s family, which fought hard to implement Grant’s Law after he was killed in a gas-and-dash in Maple Ridge in 2005. Last year, however, WorkSafeBC amended the regulations to allow employers a third option. Instead of having two people on shift, convenience stores can now follow other safety procedures, including timelock safes that can’t be opened during late night hours, video surveillance, as well as keeping limited amounts of cash and lottery tickets at hand. In addition, employers are required to do regular security audits by a qualified and independent person to confirm that all the controls have been implemented. Von Sychowski says those changes “gutted” Grant’s Law. “There was an extensive lobby that took place headed up by Mac’s. They claimed it was ineffective and too expensive so they lobbied to get it removed,” he said. “That’s why they are the target of the event.” EARN and the B.C. Federation of Labour hopes the protests will capture the attention of politicians as the province heads to the polls May 14. WorkSafeBC though

Maple Ridge council has decided who will get the $61,800 in grants it dishes out yearly after a report by staff that tries to share the limited funds. Thanks to earlier commitments, the sum has already been chopped by $5,000, which goes to the Iron Horse Youth Safe House, and another $3,700 to offset property taxes for a transitional house. Other groups will get larger amounts, following council approval of staff recommendations Tuesday. The Friends in Need Food Bank will get $14,700 to help in replacement of a delivery
van, a drop of $2,300, while the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Society will get $10,000, and the Haney Farmers Market will get $6,000, with a grant of the same amount going to the Salvation Army’s Caring Place. A smaller amount of $4,000 will go to the Family Education and Support Centre’s community kitchen, which shows low-income seniors how to cook and eat cheaply. To keep some excitement in Halloween, the Maple Ridge Lions Club will get $3,000 for the fireworks display at Albion Fairgrounds on that night, while the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows-Katzie Seniors Network will get $2,800 for its Seniors Resource Guide.
The North Fraser Therapeutic Riding Association will also get some help – $2,500 – which will help provide care for one of the horses for half a year. The group gives rides to disabled kids as a means of improving their condition. A staff report notes that the District of Maple Ridge also partners with other groups by having paying various fees for services they perform. Those include Adopt a Block, the Alouette River Management Society, Kanaka Education and Environmental Partnership Society, the Youth and Justice Advocacy Association and Ridge Meadows Search and Rescue. The Alouette River society will also get another $30,000 from a separate funding source, the district’s 10-per-cent share of

slot machine revenues from the community gaming centre. That money will be used to upgrade the fish hatchery at the Rivers Heritage Centre on the South Alouette River. The Kanaka Education and Environmental Partnership Society got a grant of the same amount last year for the new hatchery and stewardship centre now underway in Kanaka Creek Regional Park. A new grant will be awarded to Grant Hill Partnerships, which is building Grant Hill Estates. The company is donating the proceeds of one of the show homes to the new Canuck Place in Abbotsford and is a requesting a $4,000 grant equivalent to what the company paid in building permit fees. Staff recommend the grant be approved.

Enviro students 2nd The environmental school didn’t win the Canada’s Coolest School Trip contest, but did take the $500 second prize, to be given to a charity of its choice. Six Grade 8 students, with the help of some parent volunteers, put together a lighthearted online commercial for the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site, as part of the Parks Canada contest to promote the tourism opportunities on Cape Breton Island. Justin Hyde said he and the other students thoroughly enjoyed the project. “It was an amazing experience. I’ll get my teachers to fail me, so I can do it one more time.” They did a professional job, with script, storyboards, and weeks of planning, which all culminated in a day of shooting at Fort Langley. Hyde said he learned a lot about film making in the project. “It was really cool to see how much was invested in just a 60-second video, and how all these little things come together.” Then they edited the work down to the final one-minute presentation. “It was pretty incredible teamwork,” said principal Clayton Maitland. They were able to donate $500 to the charity of their choice – the Friends in Need Food Bank. “We learned they were low on money and food to help people, and we thought it would be a good idea to help them out,” said Hyde.

His promise: all will be well in the end Ac t s of Faith by Dave Jonsson
he sound of the birds chirping and the beauty of the first cherry blossoms bring hope and joy to us after a long winter. Creation cries out, “Summer is coming.” In my own life, I know of dozens of people who have not only been going through a season of winter, but also a season of hardship. Similar to the cycle of seasons, our life often brings about seasons of difficulty, followed by seasons of serenity. Our tendency during a season of difficulty is to worry, loose sleep, and, ultimately, to fear.
However, one of the subjects that Jesus was abundantly clear on was the topic of worry. In Luke 12:2235, Jesus uses flowers and birds as his illustrative objects of teaching. He says, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the birds: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds.! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” Jesus’ reminder to us is that our value as human beings surpasses
any other creation of God; and therefore, God’s desire to take care of our needs is incomparable. Jesus makes it very clear that when we are worried about material things, we are not doing the one thing we need to do the most: trusting God. God and his purposes for our lives and his promise to us is that all will be well in the end. Instead of thinking anxious thoughts of fear, instead choose to think about the numerous promises of God and pray for strength. As a wise man once said, “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change.” – Dave Jonsson, Associate Pastor of NorthRidge Foursquare Church.

s an educator, I am constantly offering suggestions to young people, particularly when I teach health lessons. While I spend a lot of time speaking about issues specific to youth, from social relationships to media literacy and drugs and alcohol, I also spend time talking to them about the issues of the elderly. As we age My intent is two-fold. Young people have a tendency to think Graham Hookey very much in the here-and-now and, thus, lifestyle choices that don’t bring very specific and immediate changes tend to be ignored. Using examples of long-term poor lifestyle choices (i.e. the health of older people) does tend to get their attention a bit more, but just a bit. My second intent is to encourage young people to understand more about the elderly and perhaps be more compassionate and attentive. There is a family component to this, getting young people to pay attention to their grandparents or perhaps even their parents in some cases. For many elderly, the sun rises and sets on the grandchildren and rarely interacting with them or being overtly ignored by them is hurtful and isolating. Young people are not necessarily aware of the importance of their presence in the lives of grandparents.

Make time for grandparents Hookey from p21

2013 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN CANADA VALUE PACKAGE
They do not have the life experiences to understand such emotional attachments and everyone who matters to them in the “here-and-now” world is at their fingertips – their parents and their friends. Developing compassion and consideration for the elderly is a learned behaviour that requires recognition and reminders, especially if there is physical distance between the two generations. When my children were in their early teens, we lived 8,000 kilometres from their grandparents. We made sure they spoke to their grandparents every week on the phone and each summer we’d put one or two on an airplane to spend a month with them. Those
were precious moments for both generations. But looking at it from the other side, I recognize now that those times together were even more important for them than it was for my children. The anticipation of their arrival, the efforts made to entertain them (lots of outdoor activities), and the fun they had together provided an enormous incentive for the grandparents to be fit, healthy and happy themselves. Frankly, it kept them young. As my parents aged, and the boys spent their summers earning money for school, there was a definite loss for both sides as the opportunities to spend time together diminished. The weekly phone calls remained a
staple, but being together physically was limited to a few holiday periods when the whole family travelled to visit. We have a Grandparents’ Day in our school, an opportunity for the two generations to come together and share some special time. It’s a day when I like to remind students just how important it is for them to be a regular part of their grandparents’ lives and a time to remind the grandparents just how important it is for them to be an influence in the lives of their grandchildren. As parents, the more we can support that relationship, the healthier and more rewarding for both sides. firstname.lastname@example.org

Langley’s Waterstone to release next phase
Appealing to the downsizing market As the baby boomers get older, many of them are looking to find a singlestorey home that they can lock up and leave when they decide to go away for awhile. The newest phase at Langley’s Waterstone, called Esplanade, has been catering to downsizers with spacious floorplans and a vibrant community feel. “These are the largest ever floorplans offered at Waterstone,” says Scott Brown of Colliers International. “It’s also the first lofted product in the area. That loft gives you 100 square feet of extra living space.” Along with that extra space, the homes with lofts will have 14-foot
ceilings. Brown notes that it can be hard for downsizers to move from a larger single-family home to a small condominium, especially when they’ve been there for many years and possibly raised a family. “There’s an emotional connection to your home,” he says. One of the things that he has found downsizing buyers asking for is storage. People accumulate plenty of possessions over the years, and sometimes aren’t ready to part with all of it quite yet. For more information about Esplanade, visit waterstoneliving.ca or call 604-530-5399.

Homeowners will be able to take advantage of several amenities on-site, including a fitness studio and sauna, an outdoor terrace with plenty of green space, a firepit and children’s play area, and a concierge service. Residents will also have use of a lounge with a kitchen, bar and billiards table. However, it’s the huge lobby that is one of the most impressive things about Vantage. With it’s 20-foot vaulted
ceilings, gorgeous marble floor and oversize chandelier, it’s truly impressive. “The lobby blew me away,” Tayour says. Vantage is perfectly placed within the neighbourhood. With restaurants, transit and shopping on your front steps, you won’t have to travel very far to get what you need. Elementary and secondary schools are nearby, along with the British Columbia Institute of Technology and Simon Fraser University.

‘Only new completed development of this level in the area’
Embassy brings amazing Vantage point to Brentwood By Kerry Vital
Embassy Developments brings sophisticated style to North Burnaby with the premium collection homes at Vantage, its modern high-rise tower in Brentwood that is becoming an integral part of the skyline. “This is a small collection of boutique luxury homes,” says sales manager Muna Tayour. “They’re really, really spectacular.” With penthouse-style finishings and spacious floorplans, the premium twobedroom homes at Vantage are made for elegance. “This level of finishing is far superior” to anything else on the market, Tayour says. “This is the only new completed development of this level in the area.” Embassy is owned by Ryan Bosa, son of real estate legend Nat Bosa. The Bosa name is well-known for high-quality homes, and Tayour says this has had an effect on buyers at Vantage.
“Being familiar with the developer is very important in purchasing,” she says. “People are confident with Ryan and the Embassy name.” Indeed, Bosa started Embassy in 2003 and has since continued his father’s legacy for impressive projects. This is readily apparent in the premium collection homes, which are located on the 23rd floor and higher in the 33-storey building, so the views are spectacular. Each two-bedroom home comes with a spacious balcony to give you ample outdoor living space to entertain or relax. The huge windows bring the outdoors inside, highlighting the nine-foot ceilings that add to the airiness of your home. The two-bedroom floorplans average 1,150 square feet, so there is no shortage of space. In fact, Vantage is the only tower in the neighbourhood that offers such large suites. The two-bedroom homes are one-of-a-kind, and perfect for homeowners looking for the space of a penthouse but with the price of a condo. When it comes to making your home your own, you are able to choose between two colour schemes, Classic and Contemporary. In the kitchen, you’ll find full-size stainless-steel appliances and a fullheight stone backsplash. The Classic colour scheme comes with granite countertops and horizontal wood

Finding a pharmacy in your yard I
t is an annual event or a rite of spring that involves my back, my trowel and that persistent yellow-flowered weed that seems to love my lawn. Since I don’t Gardening spray any Mike Lascelle herbicides in my garden, the dandelions have assumed that they have a ‘get out of jail free card’, and as much as my daughters berate me for popping them out (they have fond memories of weaving dandelion tiaras), I usually end up with about two bushels full by the time I am done. The irony of this exercise is that dandelions (taraxacum officinale) was actually brought to North America as a medicinal plant and pot herb by European settlers in the mid 1600s. Taraxacum was mentioned in both Persian and Arabic herbals as early as 900-1000 AD as cure for liver ailments. While I might agree with Ralph Waldo Emerson, who classified a weed as “a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered,” that really can’t be said for dandelions. The foliage has the highest Vitamin A content of any leafy vegetable and they

There are about 65 plants given the species name officinalis, officinale or officinarum – meaning that according to Linnaeus, they were all used as medicinal plants. A visit to the herb section of your local garden centre will familiarize you with several more of these – including Foenicu-
lum officinale (fennel, now called F. vulgare), marjorana officinale (Marjoram, now called origanum majorana), Salvia officinalis (culinary sage), Melissa officinalis (lemon balm), levisticum officinale (lovage) and rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary). In fact, even Harry Potter got into the act by giving one of the more obscure officinalis plants some degree of notoriety, that being the mandrake (mandragora officinarum). The parsnip-like roots are said to take on
most popular include English lavender (L. officinalis, now L. angustifolia), common Jasmine (Jasminum officinale), apothecary rose (rosa gallica var. officinalis), valerian (valeriana officinalis), European peony (paeonia officinalis) and soapwort (saponaria officinalis) – all of which are delightfully fragrant. Of course, dandelions weren’t the only weedy species brought to North American for medicinal purposes. A few other common culprits include the mouse-ear hawkweed (pilosella officinarum, now called Hieracium pilosella), comfrey (symphytum officinale) and common speedwell (Veronica officinalis). So for all you taraxacum pluckers out there, I am going to leave you with a traditional French recipe for dandelion salad so you can at least enjoy a bit your labor by means of eating your enemies.

Actual ly, it is a hallucinogen used in magic (wiccan) rituals, but has also been utilized in the past as a cure for headaches, muscle cramps, epilepsy and gout. So Harry must have been onto something. There is also an aestheticallypleasing element of medicinal plants, many of which are commonly found in modern gardens. A few of the

Fundraiser for paralympic competitor
Squad has reason to cheer The Maple Ridge Secondary cheer team placed first at the Sea to Sky International Championships last weekend, with a huge lead of 13 points over the second-place finisher, and 60 points over third.
Gant on target for Spartans Brayden Gant of Maple Ridge scored the afternoon’s only goal as the Trinity Western Spartans men’s soccer team edged Seattle Pacific 1-0 at Rogers Field. He scored the goal in the 10th minute, from inside 10 yards. The Spartans are now 3-2-1 in six spring games. They are back in action April 12 when they host Western Washington at 7:30 p.m.
Colleen Flanagan/the newS
Fly at them Austin Brown of Maple Ridge secondary junior squad attempts to take down a player from the Brookswood Bobcats during a game Monday afternoon at MRSS. The locals suffered numerous injuries, and lost the game.
When Maple Ridge’s Tristan Smyth became a paraplegic in 2010, after a longboarding accident, the community rallied behind him to support his recovery. Smyth has developed a passion for wheelchair racing, and dreams of making the Canadian wheelchair racing national team and competing at the Rio 2016 Paralympics. He has been competing in a local race series for the past two years, and goes to 10k runs and half marathons in various cities. He has raced against Canadian Paralympic Team athletes at the nationals already. He is clearly loving the sport. “I’d also like to see more recognition for the sport and to advance the level of research, technology, and sport science that goes into it and developing top level athletes in the sport,” he said. “Add legitimacy to it. Legitimize parasports to the general public audience, so people are interested in watching it as a sport and watching us as athletes.” His sister Caitlin Meunier is hosting a fundraiser for at the Haney Public House on Saturday, 6-9 p.m. Money raised will help support Smyth’s training and allow him to purchase the expensive equipment he needs to compete against the best athletes in the world. The cost will be $20 per person or $35 per couple.
Top soccer coach lands with Romanian pro club The West Coast Auto Group Football Club is losing technical director David Shankland to a European pro side. He has been appointed reserve team head coach of CFR Cluj of Romania. CFR Cluj is a storied professional side, and currently the reigning Romanian champions. The squad participated in the UEFA Champions League earlier this season and was tantalizingly close to qualifying for the round of 16 following a brilliant 1-0 win against Manchester United at historic Old Trafford. “It’s very difficult to get into Europe,” he said. “This is a great opportunity for me.” Shankland will lead their reserve or second team which will play in the Romanian third division. He will be tasked with preparing the next generation of players for the first team. The club will have 34 players signed, and he
will work with young players, generally aged 18-20, as well as older fringe players in the organization for depth. “My style is very attacking-minded, but I’ll be sitting down the head coach and see what he’s looking for,” he said. As technical director for WCAGFC, Shankland oversaw the creation of the club’s curriculum, which provided detailed player development plans applicable to every player in the club from three-year-olds to adult programs. “We are happy to see that David’s abilities have been recognized and rewarded with this prestigious position,” said Chris Begg, WCAGFC president. “As the architect of our club’s curriculum based on the Canadian Soccer Association’s Long Term Player Development model Da-
vid will leave us with a lasting legacy that will directly benefit future generations of players with WCAGFC.” He said the club also looks forward to the future relationship with Shankland at Cluj, providing potential opportunities for players. Shankland said he has a professional soccer background, including Youth Team Manager for the Scottish club Arbroath. “I have very much enjoyed my last 14 months in as technical director, and it has been a very difficult decision to leave West Coast Auto Group FC at a time when I see such a bright future for the club,” he said. “However, opportunity allows me to return to professional football and the challenges that go with it, which I can honestly say that I have missed. It will also be a new adventure for our whole family. I will look forward to
a long lasting relationship with West Coast Auto Group FC.” He has also worked for B.C. Soccer, and had his own soccer school in 10 years in B.C. Shankland said opportunities for elite soccer players are rare in Canada. Coaches prepare youth players to be ready to compete against their American counterparts, but unless they are good enough to play for the MSL teams such as the Vancouver Whitecaps, there is nowhere for them to go. The MLS teams carry only a few Canadians. “It’s a very frustrating place to be involved in football, to be honest,” he said. “The talent is here, there’s just nowhere for it to go.” “We need a Canadian league.” He will open doors to allow coaches and elite players to visit Cluj.

Staying Healthy: Proactive Aging Ask the Expert Panel Discussion Presented by: Serving Maple Ridge & Pitt Meadows since 1978
raining for a 10-kilometre fun run or full marathon takes dedication, time, effort and a strong will in order to complete successfully. Getting up before the birds do, braving the cold morning temperatures, the snow on the ground or the searing heat of mid-day is a hard thing to keep going through. The minor aches and pains, blisters, sore muscles are all part of the regular landscape that one must learn to accept and make a regular feature of your day. But for the rookie racer, the few weeks before the event it is an exhilarating time that can be very rewarding or disappointing, depending how the runner carries out their training regimen during this crucial time. It is very unfortunate to see someone who trains so hard have a bad race experience because of errors in training or preparation during these penultimate days. Here are a few tips and pointers for those that have embarked on this journey and are nearing the big day. One of the biggest mistakes in your preparation is not sticking with your prescribed training schedule. Sometimes runners do less or even more than what is required. Runners who are feeling very good may get a sense of overconfidence and feel like they can miss training days and cut corners. I can tell you from ex-

HEPPNER, John January 3rd, 1928 April 5, 2013 We are saddened to announce the passing of our dear father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother and uncle. Born in Drake, Sask., he moved to BC in 1948, where he had a number of jobs before finding his chosen career in pile driving and bridge building with Fraser River Pile and Dredge. He loved his job, and the many characters he worked with. John enjoyed sports and was a good athlete, playing baseball, golf and curling. He hunted, fished and was a great card player, gambler and storyteller. But mostly, John loved his family, was a father who led by example, and showed us how to love. His devotion and care of his wife Nora was truly inspiring. He will not be forgotten. Predeceased by his beloved wife Nora, stepson Jeff, sisters Tina and Anne.
